The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2021


Nellie Bowles


New York Times journalist Nellie Bowles was raised Greek Orthodox and Episcopalian, but is in the process of converting to Judaism. She writes a weekly blog, “Chosen by Choice,” to enable her readers to deepen their understanding of Judaism. “Maybe you were raised Christian like me but now are now starting toward living a Jewish life,” says Bowles, who is planning to marry her partner, a Jewish woman. “Maybe you’re Jewish and hoping to convert your husband or wife and looking for tips. Maybe you think religion or changing your religion or non-Orthodox Judaism or lesbianism is all crazy and want to know just how exactly a crazy person thinks. I’m here for all these readers and more.” (Photo: Personal homepage)
